Saw one posted on another forum with an OP asking if it was legit. I guess I am used to seeing fakes b/c it looks fake right off the bat to me.
Even in the linked article, look at the face of Liberty - not even close.

this is another problem that comes about with specialty coins like the V75 ASE: counterfeits. you had to know this was coming eventually. I would expect 2019-S ERP fakes to surface eventually, as well. buyer beware.

edit: I had posted asking where counterfeits such as these come from, albeit as flawed as they are, and after posting I found some good sources to answer my question. Yes, I'm a newbe!
